House at Pollower

This house involved extending and extensively re-modelling an existing dwelling. The new extension combined with a new store defines an entrance courtyard and parking. The extension presents a closed wall to the entrance courtyard and opens through a glazed projection to the panoramic views to the North. A series of roof-lights provide an even light to gallery spaces on the closed side while also blocking out direct sunlight.

A central height and half living room is the focal point of the re-modelled home with lower spaces for sitting, dining and gallery opening from each side. Guest bedrooms and family rooms are separated on each side of the new extension, with service spaces and circulation located in the existing structure.
